This week was the big garlic harvest, family came to help and we have almost all of the crop hanging happily in the barn. We grow around 1/3 of an acre of garlic, this year we grew 8 different varieties. When we started our farm in 2007 we planted 19 different kinds of garlic! We have slowly narrowed it down to the best tasting and most productive of those. Some of our favorites are Russian Red, Khabar and German Hardy. We really love garlic and hopefully you do too!
Since we spent the morning harvesting potatoes here is our dinner-one of our favorite early summer dishes- Potato Tomato Gratin
